Note

Poem for Piano, Violin, Viola and Violoncello
2013 WN 2
Adagio – Largo – Adagio

This composition in one set for piano quartet breathes the air of ancient greek myths! In a musical style of the late romantic time the piece tells the tale of the tragic romance between the great poetess of Lesbos and her unfilled love. The three part form reflects the charakter of the two lovers and is carried by a masterly part of the piano, although the strings are the protagonists of the music.
